A holiday favorite! These Old Fashioned Snowball Cookies are a must to add to your Christmas cookie list.
Making these Old Fashioned Snowball Cookies is truly one of my fondest memories of my childhood Christmas traditions. I made these cookies with my mother each year and I felt like such a big girl rolling the dough into little balls with her. I am loving carrying on the tradition with my daughter too.
They are melt in your mouth yummy. A cold glass of milk is a must.
